NIR-6400

The Explosion Proof Series of IR moisture analyzers provide an advanced level of protection from hazardous environments and meet the compliance standards of most regulatory bodies. The NIR 6400 Series is suited for Class I, II, and III hazardous locations, as defined by the National Electrical Code®, and is accompanied with the appropriate certificates required of the classification including the nameplate indicating the distinct classification for which it has been approved.

Explosion Proof Analyzers

Sensortech’s NIR 6400 Series of Explosion Proof moisture analyzers satisfy a unique manufacturing requirement in hazardous environments where flammable gases or vapors, combustible dust, and easily-ignitable fibers are present. We are specialists in these sensitive manufacturing environments and provide quality performance where it is needed most.

Air Pressurization Analyzer

The NIR-6410 Series (shown on the left below) is an air pressurized IR moisture analyzer suitable for Class II Div II environments where combustible dust is present under abnormal conditions. The moisture analyzer is shown with a flange mount application interface that is used with closed conveyor equipment.

Class I Environments

The NIR-6400 Series (shown on the right below) is an explosion proof IR moisture analyzer having a heavy cast-metal enclosure and is designed for Class I Div I environments where explosive gases, mists or vapors are present under normal operating conditions.

NIR-6400 Performance

  • Innovative Optical Design
    The IR Series optical design provides a foundation of measurement stability and reliabiliy. High precision tolerances of machined parts and alignment of optical components enusure optimal performance.
  • Single-Point, Dual-Purpose Detector
    The long established Quadrabeam Principle combines the measurement light path and the direct (prime) light path onto a single detector eliminating variations due to aging and operating temperature more effectively than expansive matched dual detector products. The large surface area detector (10mm sq.) minimizes error due to product height variation.
  • Collimated Energy Source
    Effective use of power dramatically increases optical efficiency enabling the instrument to run significantly cooler. The reduced operating temparature inherently reduces stress on electronics and power supplies, increases the life of the instrument and further reduces costs associated with added temperature conditioning.
  • Optimized Electronic Signal Conditioning
    Oversampling, 16-bit resolution and multiple-level digital filtering minimize signal noise. Proprietary design and state of the art electronic technology further enhances instrument performance.

Process Integration

Integrating moisture measurement and control into your process is a simple task with the IR Series moisture analyzers. A wide range of communication protocols are available for a networked multi-sensor configuration or as a stand-alone instrument.

Communication Protocols

The NIR-6000 includes standard features such as Ethernet TCP/IP, RS-232, RS-422/485 and three self-powered isolated 4-20mA analog outputs designed to integrate into your distrubuted system. Implementing continuous moisture measurement into your process is a simple task with Sensortech.

Local Moisture Display

HMI interfaces or Remote Digital Displays are mounted at the point of measurement and provides a stand-alone intelligent interactive interface to the IR Series analyzer or a visual indication of your processes moisture control status.

Management Software

The NIR-6000 Series analyzers include a proprietary PC based software package that offers a detailed view of your production process from a desktop or laptop computer.

Measurement display, data-logging, calibration utilities and network configurations are among the many features included with your NIR-6000 Series Management Software.
